An undulating walk through farmland and woodland starting from Holmwood Station in Beare Green village. On a clear day there are good views to the Greensand Ridge and the North Downs. This walk is part of the Explore Surrey collection, published through a collaboration with Surrey County Council. The walk has several gentle gradients throughout. The paths cross a number of heavy clay soil pastures and fields and at times these can be very muddy (or with standing water) so waterproof boots or wellingtons are recommended. You will need to negotiate some steps, gates and 9 stiles (a couple of which are set into narrow fencing so larger dogs may need a lift over). Some of the fields you cross are likely to be holding horses, cattle and sheep so take particular care with dogs. Allow 2 hours. If you would like refreshments there are a few options. There is a cafe and newsagent in Beare Green Court parade of shops, which you pass towards the end of the walk. The Clubhouse at Henfold Lake Fisheries is open seasonally for refreshments and has toilets (Waypoint 5). The Duke's Head pub & restaurant is 300m south of Waypoint 9 on the A24. Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 146 Dorking, Box Hill & Reigate. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
